The 40th Brigade Engineer Battalion Commander and Command Sergeant Major visited our AO to recognize SPC Varela of our Field Feeding Section with a #BatteringRams coin. SSG Winfield recommended SPC Varela for a Battalion Coin for excellence while being the lead 92G in charge of feeding Soldiers in quarantine. Great work SPC Varela.

We would also like to thank our BN SHARP representative, Chaplain Cho, and SGT Steines for speaking to our formation on the importance of the Army SHARP and Suicide Awareness programs.

The U.S. Secretary of Defense has authorized the use of masks in instances where social distancing cannot feasibly be maintained, such as for mission essential personnel at work centers. All individuals (Soldiers, Contractors, and DA Civilians) who are unable to maintain social distancing guidelines wear a face mask that covers the mouth and nose to minimize exposure to themselves and others. All other 1AD service members are authorized to wear masks. When in uniform follow the guidance below:
-Only colors which are specific to the duty uniform, with the addition of coyote brown and black, are authorized unless wearing a medical mask. The medical mask must be neutral or similar to the typical blue masks that medical personnel wear. Unit commanders make the determination on a case-by-case basis. There is not a requirement for an entire unit to have a mask of the same color. No logos or writing are authorized on the masks.
-Service members are authorized to wear their issued gloves and eye protection within the standards prescribed in AR 670-1.
-Effective immediately: Soldiers conducting ASP missions, either issues, turn in, or regular operations, wear a face mask. IAW FBTX guidance, neck gators, scarfs, or medical masks are appropriate. #IIICorpsCOVID19 #COVID19

Congratulations Sgt. Zachary Gray for being named the #StrikeSoldier for March!

Congratulations to Sgt. Zachary Gray of 40th Brigade Engineer Battalion for being named the #StrikeSoldier for March! Gray is a (91A) M-1 Abrams tank system maintainer. He was chosen because he is devoted to placing the mission first and taking care of his Soldiers. He and his team work tirelessly to ensure the battalion's vehicles were ready for DEFENDER EUROPE-20. He managed his teams time and talent to accomplish the work of several month in under two weeks. He consistently places the well-being of his Soldiers before that of his own. He routinely takes on additional work and tasks so that his Soldiers can recover. Gray committed to being a #IronSoldier for life by re-enlisted to serve his country for an additional six years.

Dr. Scholl’s Steps Up To Raise $3 Million For Support Our Troops® Thank you for your service and for keeping all of us here at home safe. Here’s a news item about what folks at home are doing for you that will make your day! Bayer U.S. is donating $1 to SupportOurTroops.Org for each pair of Dr. Scholl’s insoles/inserts sold in Walmart stores nationwide in July, with a goal of $3 million for active-duty military and their families this year. This is good news to share with family and friends. Please do not as a service member or unit endorse Bayer or Dr. Scholl’s. Family and friends can do as they like. Throughout July, Americans can show their patriotism in every Walmart store with a purchase of Dr. Scholl’s insoles. For every pair of Dr. Scholl’s insoles of $10 or more sold in Walmart stores during the month of July, Bayer HealthCare will donate $1 to SupportOurTroops.Org, a nationwide 501(c)(3) organization. The funds raised by Bayer HealthCare will help Support Our Troops keep soldiers connected to their family, home and country by satellite from remote desert and island locations, move cargo containers downrange to sustain soldier morale and mission effectiveness, provide food assistance to overseas military children and spouses, and provide stability and continuity for overseas military youth. Family and friends of service members can encourage Bayer’s effort by: (1) sharing this article with other groups/pages, and (2) posting a big thank you! to Bayer and Dr. Scholl’s on their pages for their patriotism in supporting America’s troops. Maybe take a photo in front the display at a Walmart for that post. https://www.facebook.com/DrScholls https://www.facebook.com/BayerUnitedStates “America’s troops are actually our neighbors – those among us who have stepped up to take their turn protecting all of us. And widespread civilian support is critical to mission success and the morale and well-being of America’s troops and their families,” said Martin C. Boire, of Support Our Troops. “On their behalf I want to thank Dr. Scholl’s for stepping up with a great way for Americans to show their support and deliver tangible support to their soldiers.”
